Russia, for many, is a very interesting country full of unique traditions, situations, and even people. It seems like they live in a different reality and that's why it's almost always interesting to see glimpses of their everyday lives. Sergey Kolyaskin gives us just that with his wonderfully weird photographs.

This Russian photographer captures the life of people in his own country. His photographs portray the beauty, simplicity, and uniqueness of living in Russia. Sergey is a very creative person and has held 15 solo exhibitions, published 2 albums, and participated in all sorts of contests. He has his own photography school and travels all over the world with his camera in hand. Sergey mentioned on his website: "I don't like specializing in any particular genre. I like to shoot life in all its manifestations."
